Roundels of the World

France Back to 'France'

Collection personnelle
The french roundel is the same since the beginning of the history of the french military aviation, with the exception of the border. This yellow border, inspired by that of the Royal Air Force, appeared in 1945. The roundel is identical for all the components ; only the markings 'ARMEE DE L'AIR' (Air Force), 'MARINE' (Navy), 'armée de TERRE' (Army), 'GENDARMERIE' (French Military Police Force), 'DOUANES FRANCAISES' (Customs), Centre d'Essais en Vol' (Flight Tests Centre) ou 'Sécurité Civile' differentiate the aircraft.
